This exploratory study proposes that one way to understand how and why journalists get influenced is to focus on their economic and cultural capital. Based on a survey of 349 journalists from the Philippines, this study found that journalists with low economic capital tend to perceive political influence as more influential on their work, while journalists with low cultural capital tend to perceive economic influence and reference groups as more influential.
